30 Little Boy Haircuts
Finding the right haircut for your little boy can be tricky. If he’s not a toddler, he’s old enough to have an opinion about what his hair looks like, but you’ll still want to choose something that works with his hair type and is relatively easy to maintain. Inspired by the classic haircuts and trendy looks that grown-up guys are sporting, we’ve collected 30 of the best little boy haircuts to help you choose the perfect style for your growing boys.
1Side Part With Undercut
This side parted style leaves hair long enough on top to be styled sideways across the head, while an undercut around the back and sides keeps this haircut trendy looking and easy to maintain.
2Soft Textured Haircut
If your little boy isn’t at the age where he’s interested in having his hair styled or combed, giving him a haircut with texture will create shape without requiring daily styling. This particular cut looks great on little boys with finely textured hair, and cuts a fringe around the face to keep hair from getting in his eyes.
